More Simple things...

Today is all about appreciating the simple things in life. Please go over to Christina's place to celebrate with all the other bloggers on this beautiful day.

Here is my list:

Waking up to a day of sunshine and blue skies.

Wild daisies, buttercups and pansies growing around where I live.

Rereading Jane Eyre.

Listening to classical and swing music.

Having my toes painted with clear sparkly nail polish.

Unexpected calls and texts from dear friends.

Remembering happy times with my Sean.

Learning a new poem to perform one day.

Thank you, beautiful.

What a nice list. I don't get over to comment often. I get your posts in my email and sometimes I'm too lazy to click on over, but I wanted to come by and drop off some love. :)

Nicole said...

beautiful list! I'm loving Jane Eyre. I'm just over half way through it!

kendalee said...

What a great list! I feel uplifted just reading it. And I so agree with the waking up to a day of sunshine and blue skies being a simple but powerful pleasure! Happy day!

A lovely list Shell! And I love the little bear with his rose!

Hi Shell, I love your list, clear sparkly nail varnish - yes, (I'd kind of forgotten all about this but now may need to hunt for some!). Nothing nicer than waking up to sunshine and blue skies and yes Jane Eyre - a little while since I've re-read this, I may have to revisit!
Have a sunny happy day!

Gigi said...

Rereading Jane Eyre! Yes! That's my favorite book of all time. I so loved your list. Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit.

Rereading Jane Eyre. That is one of my favorite, FAVORITE stories.

Great list! Thank you so much for sharing.

elizabeth said...

yes, a perfect day for sure! I can never quite decide how I feel about Jane Eyre ..

Clarity said...

I would agree with most of the things on that list. Oh for a first edition of Jane Eyre. Such a quiet but strong lady beneath. I want a list of good swing songs to listen to for my player, please :)

marinik said...

love swing too, what a great picture of you at a young age. :)

Kamana said...

agree with most of the things on your list... except pansies. it's a strange thing, but pansies have always been kind of eerie to me (i know, i'm weird)

Martina said...

Shell! What a great list..totally with you on quite a few, especially Jane Eyre...maybe 4-5 times for me! Also loving swing music and that ever elusive sunshine!!

Graciel @ Evenstar Art said...

A wonderful list! I love waking up to blue skies and all of the possibility in a new day too.

Tracy said...

Love the every day magic here, Shell... And Jane Eyre--oh, yes...Happy Day :o)

Liss said...

Great list. I always feel prettier with painted toe nails, even if no one sees them.

Grace said...

Great list. I loved Jane Eyre.

Wanda said...

Hi Shell--Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your list. Sparkly clear polish? What fun.

I love that you are a dreamer and you are following your dreams. I majored in theatre (only "theatre majors" spell it that way!) in college and miss acting. I didn't follow that dream. So exciting that you did...are...do.

paris parfait said...

Oh re-reading Jane Eyre! Isn't that the best book?? Love it! And what a lovely list of simple things you've shared with us!
